Four People Injured in Bomb Blast

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

– Four people were slightly injurer when a bomb exploded on a bus as it was about to enter the central bus station in Tel Aviv this afternoon. The bus, from Netanya had been halted just before it reached the terminal by another bus from Jerusalem from which passengers were being evacuated in a hurry after reports of a suspicious suitcase aboard.

When the Netanya bus stopped, most of its passengers got off. Only three women passengers and the driver were still aboard when the explosion occured in the rear baggage compartment. Police described the charge as of “small to medium” size. The suspicious package aboard the bus from Jerusalem was found to be harmless, but police began searching all buses entering the terminal. Ten Arabs were detained for questioning.
